Cartilage Integrity in the Lateral and Patello-Femoral Compartments of Varus Knees
Dushey C, Boettner F, Hass S

  • This study investigates the integrity of cartilage in the lateral and patello-femoral compartments of varus knees.  The integrity of this cartilage is a key factor in the surgical decision to proceed with either uni-condylar or total knee replacement.  X-rays, MRIs and biomechanical testing will be used to determine which parameters best predict ultimate cartilage integrity.
